The NLOP (National League of Poker) is a good bet for poker players who want tournament action. in May 2006, is the first completely free-to-play online poker portal that offers players risk-free poker tournaments that awards cash and prizes to winners.

"Our NLOP division continues to experience amazing adoption numbers, averaging over 10,000 new players per month" said Michael Clebnik, COO of Power Play. "The Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act has changed the online poker landscape forever. The withdrawal of offshore sites like Party Poker from the U.S. market has left millions of Americans abandoned. NLOP is the leading legal alternative for online poker play."
NLOP has designed a fantasy-sports style weekly contest structure where contestants receive "NLOP Points" each day they log in. They use these points as entry fees to tables where they can earn more points, qualify for finals, or win cash prizes.
"We have developed the all-important 'loss factor' into our competitions," continued Roy A. Evans EVP. "The poker play on our site is as serious as real-money sites because our NLOP points have true value -- play poorly and you go bankrupt on points, and can't play again until the next day." Evans also announced that NLOP plans on adding a suite of new games and enhanced player-functionality next quarter, and expects to award over $250,000 in prizes in 2007.
